Checking out the Hot Buns!

Kicking off the Lunar New Year, a group of friends and I headed to checkout some hot buns. 

Might have to explain this one...

Let me try again, we went to try some bao buns filled with different kinds of proteins and fillings.  We headed over to The Bun House, you might be familiar with The Bun Truck, this is their brick and mortar location which just opened.

See What Jay Eats...

Each order comes with 2 buns and a side salad.
You can add a side of fries or sweet potato fries for $2.

Korean Marinated Beef, Tempura Fried Onions, and Aioli 

Spicy Pig 
Spicy Pork, Cucumber, Scallions, Tzaziki, and Sriracha

 Pork BBQ
Pork Belly, Cucumber, Citrus Slaw, and Spicy BBQ Sauce

Crispy Chicken, Cucumber, Citrus Slaw, and Spicy BBQ Sauce

All of the buns seemed to have the same flavor profile with a bit spicy at the finish.  I would've liked to have each one with a difference in flavor, but it is what it is.  All of the proteins were cooked well and the buns were really good.  I think my favorite was the Katsu, had some texture and I liked the citrus slaw.

We opted for a couple of sides...

 Shop Fries
with Garlic Rosemary Shoestring Fries with Ranch

I really liked these fries,  not sure if it's because
I've cut down on fried foods and haven't
had fries in awhile.

 Ba'Corn Cheese
with Bacon, Corn, and Mozzarella
served on a cast iron pan.

How could this not be good?
Three of my favorite things,
Bacon, Corn, and Mozzarella!

The not-to-miss dessert
Deep Fried Oreos
with Green Tea Ice Cream

A couple of reasons why you should order this.
I've had green tea ice cream and this one
was very creamy, probably made in-house.
The Oreos, fried just right!

Would order this one again,
cookies and deep fried,
how could this not be good? 

Overall, the buns were good, wished the seasoning on each 
was a bit different.  The Deep Fried Oreos is a not-to-miss menu item!
Would go back and try a few more and dessert, of course.
